Welcome to DR.EW Johnny Heikell
Warfare Consulting and Training
A website without snooping cookies
Introduction to the website
Dr.EW Johnny Heikell is the official name of my company that provides consulting and training in electronic warfare. The consultancy is unique in focusing on the susceptibility of helicopters and other low and slow flying aircraft to man-made threats.
Electronic warfare self-protection (EWSP) of low and slow flying aircraft has only recently caught the attention of military decision-makers, trigged by the fact that in recent conflicts more rotorcrafts than fixed-wing aircraft have been lost to hostile fire. Civil authorities became aware of threats to commercial aircraft with the attempt by terrorists to down an Israeli aircraft with tourists in Kenya in 2002. Click on SERVICES for more information on what Dr.EW Johnny Heikell can do for you.
The Dr.EW DOWNLOADS page contains slide presentations by Dr. Johnny Heikell. Among them are sample slides for the Helicopter EW seminar, an introduction to the Scilab simulation tool, etc. Apart from the Helicopter EW slides thare are no copyright strings attached to the material, only the wish that the material is redistributed as freely as it is given here.
The LINKS page, with subpages, contains links to the best unclassified web data and information sources on aircraft susceptibility and related fields. More information are available on the web but time prohibits maintaining a comprehensive link page.
RECENT NEWS contains brief reviews of recent events in the fields of electronic warfare, defense, simulation, computing, IT security and privacy, etc. Uunclassified news on recent electronic warfare system development is scarce but the history of EW is rich. The explosive development in the ICT field means that its negative consequenceshacking and malware in all their malicious formscannot be overlooked by EW specialists. Computer simulation is a basic tool by which to predict the behaviour of one's systems.
The ABOUT Dr.EW page gives you basic information about the consultancy and the man behind it, Dr Johnny Heikell. The noteworthy thing is that although Dr Johnny Heikell is a person, Dr.EW Johnny Heikell is a registered Finnish company. If a German name had been selected for the company it would obviously be known as Ingenieurbüro Dr Heikell.
